Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Do-Ahead: Patties can be made the day ahead of grilling and stored covered in the refrigerator until ready to grill. Remove patties from refrigerator about 10 minutes prior to grilling so they won't not be ice cold going onto the grill.
  • Tip 2
    Substitution: For a lighter version, you can use ground turkey; just adjust the cooking time. Cook about 6 minutes on each side, turning once, until meat thermometer inserted in centre of patties reads 165F.
